Established in 2008, the Rio Grande Return is a joint venture. The web store is an LLC designed to support local farmers and producers and to raise money in the form of conservation donations that are included in each gift package.
These donations, and any matching donations, are deposited into an account for the Rio Grande Return 501(c)3, a non-profit corporation. The board of directors meets periodically though out the year to identify and grant these funds to organizations and individuals who are working on projects that best compliment the Rio Grande Returnís mission.
Detailed information about the organizations and projects funded by the Rio Grande Return can be found here.
